already feel effects of the president healthcare reform law. tonight chief national correspondent jim angle on the unintended consequences that are very real. >> small business account for two-third of all new jobs but that may be changing as they attest the burden of obamacare which forces them to provide coverage if they employ more than 50 workers. >> not just any coverage but once size fits all got designed plan with the specified essential benefits. that will cost about twice as much as what many employers currently provide. on top of that, we have seen literally almost 100% increase in the last decade. for the small business premiums going up. how exactly does this law address this? it doesn't. >> one way to avoid the burden of the new law is keep the workforce below 50 employees or limit workers' hours to less than 30 per week, defined at part-time. incentive not to create more jobs. >> number one, don't hire. youent to want to get above 50. number two, don't let them work more. keep them part-time if possible. >> many businesses across the country are doing just that. 100 work
? if you look at it -- who have already, on average, lifted their premiums, 50 75% since the healthcare law went into effect, when they were supposed to cover all of these things they hadn't had to cover before, and their premium increases, which few democrats saw coming,-under now etch -- are now etched in stone. >> that's because states like mine and california don't have any authority to actually do anything but review these rate increases. states that have reviewed those rate increases have actually forced those rates down, and because -- >> they don't. they don't. you might be right, might have the power and authority in private but let's say something like unite health care tries to push in a 20% increase and they get an 18% increase. still a big increase. i guess what i'm getting at, with the best of your intentions here, seems we're doing everything but addressing underlying spending when we say things like, spending isn't the problem. healthcare penning is. maybe that would do the trick. when we come up with the idea -- not you -- but the trillion dollar coin or 14th amendment
at the last second, you probably didn't do that great on. now to something else, president's healthcare law we are finding more about it as each day goes by. there is two day symposium to train journalists how to report on it sponsored by the commonwealth fund who president is david blumenthal. something tells me among the speakers you won't find this lady, former state lieutenant governor, she is a frequent critic of obamacare and she has a new book out "beating obamacare." when you went to the symposium who understand the law so they can report on it, you got more than a bad law issue? >> that's right. i laughed when i heard about the symposium because the left leaning commonwealth fund is noted for slanting its research to support that view and commonwealth fund is being run by david blumenthal one of chief architects of it. so it won't be balanced. the commonwealth fund is largely responsible for the misconceptions and incorrect information that led many members of congress to vote for this giant law without ever reading it. i'll give you an example. one day on the floor of senate, senator

of entitlement programs. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of healthcare and size of the deficit. we reject that they must choose between caring that built the country. >> like every president since fdr, mr. obama started his day early, with a prayer service at st. john's church. before departing the white house for the longest motorcades known to man for the rise to the capital. a star-studded affair. where else do you see paul ryan mingling with jay-z and beyonce who belted out the national anthem. >> the ceremony was over there was a stream of pomp and circumstance waiting. >> from signing papers to officially nominate the new cabinet to lunch with congressional leaders. then, of course, the parade. the first family could make the way back to the white house in that grand bulletproof review stand. yet all of that could wait because leaving the west front of the capitol, the president went off script to take in the vista of the national mall. mr. obama seemed to be taking in the moment. overheard saying he would never quite see this view again. as the president i

problem. it's because of this healthcare problem. >> i mean this is so riddled with mistakes, it's hard to list them all. as you know and previous guest gary made clear, the problem is entitlement spending. if you add new entitlement, you have a bigger problem. it goes the wrong direction. insurance costs are high for two reasons. healthcare costs are high and insurance has to pay for operations on top of that and all obamacare did was add new regulations and insurance costs. it made the bill go up and not down and public optional will fix that. >> neil: inherent in the argument, what we mean to say, the public option and insurance companies go away, they don't exist. illegal all the government? >> absolutely. there are many people who believe this was from the beginning a plan to get rid of private insurance and turn it into one big government operation. we're seen some evidence of that. here is the problem, in the end what does the insurance company do, it negotiates with other providers to get the lowest price they can so they can sell insurance. there was never a government that loo
